an electoral standpoint, so i think the obama campaign is feeling very good right now. >> let me ask you about this, because the romney campaign is telling allies to sort of talk up the republican chances in democratic leaning states, forcing obama on defense is what they're trying to do. is this a strategy, do you think, that can work by just trying to send out that message? >> well, look, momentum and the image of momentum is important for both camps, and there's people who like to vote for the winner. they like to say on wednesday night, i voted for the guy on -- on wednesday morning, i voted for the guy who won. there is some of that. you are also seeing that it's having an affect. you're seeing that it's not just an image. you're seeing it's a reality. we saw, for example, last night and early this morning "the tribune" the biggest newspaper in pennsylvania came out with its own poll. it has 47%-47%. that would have been unimaginable just a week ago. this is a state where the democrats should not be on the defensive, where president obama should not be on the defense this la

. >> right. it certainly has shifted. maria, very quickly, if you were running the obama campaign where would you go, what would you be doing? a lot of people have said he needs to start belting it out again and getting that sore throat that he had at the end of 2008. >> i think he'll probably end up with that sore throat on tuesday night, but i also think exactly what they're doing -- look, bill clinton wherever they can get him. and going to all of the swing states wherever they can get him. i think more importantly, to actually show real people. in ohio, to have all of the auto workers whose jobs have been saved by the president's rescue of the auto industry, in sharp contrast with what mitt romney wanted to do, which was to let the industry go bankrupt and also in sharp contrast with the absolutely flat-out deceiving ads that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even had to have the ceo of gm and the ceo of chrysler come out to say that they're lies and that he needs to cut it out. i think in ohio, such an important state for mitt romney where the president is leading

>>> all right. what do you think? you have kids. what do you think president obama is worried about most when it comes to his daughters? i'll give you a xhois of three? boys, dates, driving. >> he asked me this because i have three daughters of my own and all those things scare the you know what out of me. >> pick one. >> i have to be honest, i saw this. i know what he's going to say. but i will say, i absolutely agree with him on this one. >> here's what the president told mtv last night. >> what are you most worried about? malia getting a driver's license? malia going out on a date or malia being on facebook? >> i worry about facebook right now only because, look, i know the folks of facebook revolutionized, you know, the social networks, but malia because she's well known, you know, i'm very keen on protecting her privacy. she can make her own decisions later as she gets older. right now even just for security reasons, she doesn't have a facebook page. you know, dates, that's fine because she has secret service protection. >> you're not worried about that. >> the one thing i always te

and updates, which, of course, means less visibility for the candidates. the race right now is as tight as it comes. the latest poll has romney at 48%, president obama at 47%. so essentially we're talking about a dead heat. cnn political editor paul joins me now with more. he's live in pensacola, florida, one of the critical swing states in this election. mitt romney is headed your way today in hopes of winning over undecided voters there, paul. but how close is it politically in the sunshine state right now? >> reporter: it is very close in the sunshine state. in fact, take a look at this, christi. this is the most recent poll we did about a week ago. you can't get much closer among likely voters. mitt romney with a one-point edge, but that's all tied up in the sampling error. this is the first of three stops today for mitt romney across the state. he'll be campaigning with marco rubio, the popular freshman senator here in florida. we had this up on our website cnn.com. you can see how much attention florida is getting. both the candidates made well over 20 trips each here to the

where the president is leading right now, the obama campaign is doing exactly what they need to be doing. >> at a time like this, the visuals are just as important as the rhetoric. thank you both, maria, ana, nice to see you. >>> it is the other big story, superstorm sandy. it left behind widespread disruption and is blamed for dozens of deaths. the surprising way some of the victims died and how it may have been prevented. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

they have some real questions. this is a center right campus, and there were some obama supporters, but overall i think the edge was to romney, about the there's real questions both about the authenticity of his recentering in the general election after campaigning as a severe conservative. you heard that. also, real questions about the role that social issues and the religious right play in the republican party. some of them were very fiscally conservative is saying this doesn't fit me or my generation. it's a fascinating wide-ranging issue of students very engaged in that pivotal battleground state of virginia. >> where have you been? you've been in florida, north carolina. you're in virginia with ali velshi, and is that sort of the theme in talking to some of these voters, john, that, you know, really it's the economy that is clearly the biggest concern, the biggest issue as they're heading to the polls? >> absolutely. the economy is the biggest issue. you do hear a lot of conversation about deficit and debt, but there is the question about who would be a better steward. there's

carolina, right now. what are people there saying about the race? >> reporter: battleground bus tours here in win stop sal -- winston-salem. president obama won it four years ago by a razor thin margin. here's what voters are saying. >> given governor romney's prior experience in massachusetts, i think he will be more moderate perhaps than as appeared in his early campaign, when he was actually trying to get the nomination from the prun parrep party. >> i guess i made my decision after the debate. the level of professionalism wasn't there for obama. >> i didn't even have to think about it. even though i'm a registered independent, i don't find anything about governor romney believable or authentic. >> i voted for president obama, because i do see the change. i do see us digging ourselves out of the hole. >> so there you have it, just a sampling of the voters we've been speaking to. very tight. the voters here just as closely divided as the polls show north carolina is. but you see that focus on the economy, questions of character, and really a discussion about mitt romney headin

of the mindset that it's probably neutral. errol is right that the areas that were devastated in new york, a lot of them are republican, but new york and new jersey were going to go for barack obama anyway, and delaware as well. much of the areas that were hit are going to go for the president anyway. my question is really more academic than partisan. i do wonder given that the philadelphia area there was also some power outages and gas delays, is that going to impact the philadelphia turnout for the president and help mitt romney in pennsylvania which i've always thought, including today, i'm not really sure even with this push in there if mitt romney is going to win, maybe. it's all going to be at the margins if it helps or hurt anybody, even in a tight race i'm not so sure it's going to matter very much. >> good to have the conversation. thank you, gentlemen. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> what do presidential candidates promise in a state where unemployment is below the national average? well, more jobs, of course, but the pitch has left some voters more than a little skeptical.
